Kawasaki Zephyr 750 (ZR 750)
Kawasaki Zephyr 750 first appeared in 1991. It was based on the inline 4-cylinder engine from the sports version of the Kawasaki GPZ 750, which was air-cooled and 2 valves per cylinder. Despite the archaism of the Kawasaki Zephyr 750, it was produced for almost 17 years and was officially discontinued only in 2006.
The motorcycle features a classic steel duplex frame, a round headlight, a simple telescopic fork at the front and a double shock absorber at the rear. The Kawasaki Zephyr 750 engine does not have outstanding technical characteristics and produces only 72 hp. power, maximum torque (59 Nm) is already available at 7,500 rpm.
In 1999, a more modern model Kawasaki ZR-7 appeared on the market as the successor to the Kawasaki Zephyr 750, which still had the same old 8-valve air engine (albeit slightly modified). The Kawasaki Zephyr 750 continued to be produced in parallel until 2006.
- Kawasaki Zephyr 750 is the regular version of the motorcycle.
